Meanwhile, Floriana are also unbeaten. In addition, the Greens are showing that they improved a lot from last season.

Many thought that the match will become an uphill for Floriana on the 22nd minute as they were reduced to ten men. Augusto Rene Caseres was shown a straight red card after committing a serious foul play on the opposing goalkeeper.

However, they remained the best side and scored the opening goal of the match on the 41st minute. Following a through-ball down the left side, Tiago Adan Fonseca slotted the ball behind Aquilina.

Fonseca doubled Floriana’s advantage early into the second half. The Brazilian fired a powerful shot that sailed inside the net.

Following this result, Floriana remain unbeaten in the Premier League. On the other end, this was Gudja’s first defeat of the season.
